What will I learn?

This course is ideal for those with no or very little prior English language teaching experience (less than two years) who wish to become an English language teacher to speakers of other languages.

The course has a practical focus and is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge base required to excel as an English language teaching professional in a global environment.

We also run MA English Language Teaching for more experienced English as a Foreign Language teachers.

What you'll study

The course has a very practical focus. You will have the opportunity to take a one-year module on practical teaching. You will be involved in demonstrating a range of teaching methods in practical sessions, including:

  • designing teaching materials
  • planning lessons and tests
  • practising teaching in a peer group
  • analysing real lessons through DVD observations.

At the end of the course you will be able to accumulate the teaching materials you develop into a portfolio for job applications.

We very much value the range of perspectives that students from different socio-cultural contexts bring to teaching and learning. The profile of course participants is very international, including most recently Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Mexico, Poland, Switzerland and the UK.

Our teaching methods encourage active participation in group work, discussion and the exchange of ideas, with the aim of developing your critical and analytical skills.

We offer a high level of in-sessional support designed specifically around the needs of students, both in classes and on an individual basis. We provide one-to-one help with assignment and dissertation writing and are always happy to make appointments with students who want to talk privately about their work and progress.

Assessment

Assessment methods on this course are designed to evaluate your ability to apply theoretical concepts to practical work and where possible to relate ideas and proposals to your own teaching context. A range of assignment types are used including essays, practical tasks, portfolios, presentations, demonstration lessons and class tests.

Your career development

Our graduates are now working as English language teaching professionals, teacher trainers, textbook writers or university lecturers throughout the world.

Although this course does not offer a formal placement, it is a vocationally focused course which aims to help you to achieve an English Language teaching post in your chosen country. You will have the opportunity to take a one-year module on practical teaching and be involved in demonstrating a range of teaching methods in practical sessions, designing teaching materials, planning lessons, and tests.
